Harvesting of late-season crops is progressing in North Dakota, though some are behind the long-term average pace.
The Agriculture Department says in its weekly crop report that the soybean harvest has reached three-fourths complete, ahead of average. Sunflowers are 12 percent done and sugar beets half finished, both near the average.
But the corn, potato and dry bean harvests all are behind average, at 10 percent, 64 percent and 76 percent completed, respectively.
Winter wheat seeding is 85 percent complete, with 55 percent of the crop emerged.
Pasture and range conditions in North Dakota are rated 56 percent good to excellent. Stock water supplies are 77 percent adequate to surplus.
